what other vac kits does falcon make. ive heard the 1/32 ev mentioned a few diff times. i am kinda liking the vacs lately, maybe i will become another gregory jouette someday.

The only other WWI subject appears to be a BE2c vacform in 1/48:

ah be2c, kinda pointless with the roden around. i imagine me building vacs for craft i cant find a proper kit for like the hb c1 and spad a2/a4 i have. i also want a koster hannover and a few other sierra vacs that there isnt any kit for. i act like i need some sort of plastic for every great war subject.haha

The Falcon BE2c was out years before the Roden one was released. Probably not much of a market for it now.

looking forward to your build as I have had one of these in the stash for years! Perhaps if you start yours WNW will issue one  ::)

Well, as mentioned, here's what comes in the box. Pretty basic but what's there looks
to be good; especialy considering the age of the kit. A few A/M goodies and some basic
scratch building and we should be good to go.

RAGIII,
           I guess I'll have to build it now. ;D. But, somethings got to give. I
have little time as it is right now and I would like to get on with the Bristol
Scout. Maybe the GB at the other site will have to go??

I've never built a vac kit so I'll be watching this with interest. For newbies like me, you can never post too many photographs of your progress.

Cheers,

Chris

   Jim,
I hate to see the Bristol Scout over at GWAF go. I hope you can work in both projects together for both GB's my friend.

Chris,
        I have followed your builds with interest. There is nothing in building a Vac that you, or,
for that matter, anyone here, can't handle. So, buy one and follow along! Who knows? A couple
of us building might encourage Falcon to think about doing some more 1/32 kits? That would sure
make Wellington the 1/32 WW1 aircraft capital of the World!  ;D

Jim

PS: I'll try and find a way to post here any drawings I make for this build.

Gregory,
             I think I'm going to transfer the Scout to this Forum. I really like the
focus on modeling here. I have found myself coming to this Forum and feeling
more comfortable than to GWAF. What will have to give is the Roden GB at
GWAF. I just don't have the time right now for more than 2 projects.

...and more importantly you start building the vac and a good injection kit will come out.........(got one of these so Im only shooting myself in the foot) but for cutting your teeth on vac forms the DVIII is a good one.

Steve,
         Don't I know it! Over at the 'Drome there is a thread I started on converting the
Hobbycraft N 17 back to a N11. I had the Fuselage parts Laser cut and had the wings
back-dated when Special Hobby announced their N11. OK then, I'll do a Sopwith Pup.
Got started on that and along comes WnW with their's. So, hang in there Guys and Gals,
there's a Bristol Scout and a Fokker E5/ D-VIII in the works out there!  ;D ::) ;D

Gregory,
             It's fighting me every step of the way. I suppose that if I built
it as it came from the sheet and not tried to "upgrade" it; things would
be going a lot smoother!  :-[ :P :o :o :o
